When he wasn't toppling Kings, John LeClair (17) had two OT goals to help start the 24th Cup parade.

Right wing, 1984-91, '96-98
Using a deadly slap shot, Richer became one of the most prolific goal scorers in team history, connecting 225 times in 490 games. He scored 50 goals in 1987-88 and topped that number by one in '89-90, to become only the second Canadien, after Guy Lafleur, to score 50 or more goals in two seasons.
Center, 1980-81, '82-94
Although he never scored more than 26 goals in a season, Carbonneau was most valuable to Les Habs on defense, winning the Selke Trophy three times. One of the most popular players in team history, he served as captain for five seasons. In '06 he became the 28th coach in franchise history.
Left wing, 1982-90
The first European to suit up for Le Bleu-Blanc-Rouge, Naslund was a skilled playmaker who set an NHL record for assists by a left wing in 1985-86. Le Petit Viking also scored 43 goals that season, and his 110 points remains the last time a Canadiens player reached the century mark in scoring.
With his 6' 4" frame, and flowing curly hair, Big Bird patrolled the Montreal blue line for 17 seasons, six of which ended with the Canadiens hoisting the Stanley Cup. He's the alltime franchise leader among defensemen in games played (1,202), goals (197), assists (686), points (883) and plus/minus (+700).
No Montreal defenseman was a better offensive weapon than the hard-hitting Chelios, who averaged 0.77 of a point in 402 games with the Canadiens. In just seven seasons as a Hab, Chelios nearly did it all, winning the Stanley Cup, a Norris Trophy and finishing second to a young Mario Lemieux for the Calder Trophy.
Saint Patrick made an immediate impact on the NHL as he led the Canadiens on a magical run to the Stanley Cup and won the Conn Smythe Trophy as a 20-year-old rookie in 1986. After winning the Vézina Trophy in '89 and '90, Roy again led the Canadiens to hockey's ultimate prize in '93 while winning a second Conn Smythe.
